Poll: Football Players and the National Anthem

Poll Results

We asked thousands of people whether they felt Football Players where disrespecting Veterans when protesting during the National Anthem. The results probably won’t surprise you.

The average NFL player makes $2.1 million, according to Forbes.
Active duty soldiers up to E6 make less than $40K, starting out at less than $20K a year.

Many Americans feel that’s reason enough to resent the methods the NFL players are using to protest. Their actions seem to disrespect the flag as well as the national anthem and by proxy, the military that defends those things and their right to protest.

Even some business, like restaurants and bars, refuse to air NFL games as a way to conduct their own protests. And, although we’re still waiting on the votes to calculate the results from this poll, one of our Facebook polls showed that a whopping 92% of our readers don’t think NFL players have the right to protest while in the uniform or on the field.

TEST

The results are coming in…

96% of Americans think Football Players ARE disrespecting Veterans when protesting during the National Anthem.
4% of Americans think Football Players ARE NOT disrespecting Veterans when protesting during the National Anthem.

These results show that the protests by NFL players are completely failing. If they had a message to share, it was missed by the American public. Let’s hope it costs many of them their jobs.
